Beligan musician Tristan De Liège has merged forces with jazz quartet Jambal for brand new single, ‘Collisions of Light’.
Forming a dynamic, slow-burning production, the track exudes mystery and charm, balancing between a range of sounds and textures. Centred around its floating strings, Jambal and Liège embellish the track with twinkling keys and an emotive saxophone, steering the track towards new and unexpected directions.
Released via Tristan De Liège X Jambal Music, the track offers yet another glimpse into upcoming collaborative album ‘Enterprises of Great Pith and Moment’, due to land on September 15th. Aligning with the sounds of St Germain, Arms and Sleepers, Azymuth, and Ezra Collective, the outfits lean into a sound that feels equally contemporary yet reminiscent of the jazz greats.
Amassing over 3 million streams, Liège has an interchangeable approach to his craft, releasing music under a number of aliases including Thoma (duo with Benjamin Hill) and Tethys. When combining with the likes of Arthur Clees, Ben Bley, Maxime Igisch and Luca Garofalo, otherwise known as Jambal, the result is mature and polished, elevating their discography one step further.
Speaking on the track, they detail: “Collisions of Lights Is probably one of our personal favourites from the album. It’s based on a string sample that is looped through nearly the whole track, which we overdubbed and complemented with a newly composed string arrangement. The tune develops into a quite dramatic climax and despite its simplicity and slow tempo, it achieves great emotional momentum.”
